Jeuveau was clinically developed specifically for aesthetic reasons and made with Evolus' Hi-Pure technology using a state-of-the-art manufacturing process. Jeuveau is French for 'nouveau' meaning 'new' or 'modern' and it is pronounced 'Ju-vo'. Neurotoxins are injected into the face to prevent the skin from sagging and slow the process that generates creases around muscles in the face. Jeuveau can smooth out existing lines and help prevent new lines from forming.
Jeuveau Vs. Botox
Jeuveau is the fourth form of botulinum toxin type A to be introduced in the U.S.—Botox was first, in 2002; then Dysport, in 2009; and Xeomin, in 2011. Out of this foursome, though, Jeuveau is the first toxin to be formulated with the same 900 kDa molecular weight as Botox. Xeomin, on the other hand, has a 150 kDa molecular weight, and Dysport comes in a range of molecular sizes that similar chemical composition makes Jeuveau the most similar to Botox in terms of outcomes. “Recent data have shown that the complexing proteins that surround the active molecular core in Jeuveau and Botox are necessary for the best results. Jeuveau is not tested on amimals like the other botulinum toxins which is important to us as a clinic.
How does Jeuveau work?
Jeuveau does not require anesthesia and only takes a few minutes. Tiny needles are administered into the underlying muscles of the target area. This creates a temporary blockage between the target muscles and their associated nerves, causing the muscles to relax.
The whole treatment process takes only 15 minutes, and because its non-invasive, downtime is unnecessary. You can go back to your normal activities immediately, but follow certain precautions like:
How Long Do the Effects of Jeuveau Last?
Compared to other anti-aging treatment injections, which last 3-4 months, a Jeuveau treatment can last 5-6 months. However, there are exceptions. Individuals with hyperactive muscles may experience a shorter efficacy period. Depending on your muscle and metabolism, a Jeuveau treatment can last longer then 3 months. The dosage administered can affect your results as well. It usually takes up to 10 days to see the final results.
